BEYOND THE STATS

  • Constructed in 1929 and featuring poured in place concrete walls, steel casement windows and hand painted terra cotta tile, the Hoover Hotel suffered significant damage in the 1987 earthquake. Seasons at the Hoover maintains much of the original character of the building, while providing modern, affordable housing for low-income seniors in Whittier.
  • A new elliptical-shaped, wood-paneled element has been inserted into the ground floor, housing residents’ services, and light from roof-mounted skylights filters down to the first floor. The project includes computer and television rooms, and a multipurpose room with a community kitchen.
